Following the successful recapture of Alagarno, a haven of some sorts for insurgent group, Boko Haram in Sambisa Forest, Borno State, the Nigerian Defence Headquarters (DHQ) has released pictures of the cache of arms and ammunition recovered during the operation.

Speaking via a press release, Director of Information for DHQ, Major General Chris Olukolade said the area has been used by the terrorists as an escape route and a natural hideout from aerial surveillance.

He said: “A number of weapons and equipment were captured during the operation. Items captured from the terrorists included Armoured vehicles, several arms and ammunitions of various sizes and calibres, power generating sets, grenades and Improvised Explosives Devices (IEDs), bows and arrows, megaphones and rolls of copper cable which the terrorists used as one of the materials to make IEDs.”
